The first store in a national medical marijuana retail chain has opened in Woodlawn
The Botanist, the first store in a planned national retail chain dispensing medical marijuana, opened Monday in Woodlawn.
The store at 7175 Security Boulevard will serve as the flagship site for a retail brand that owner Acreage Holdings plans to expand to 40 locations in several states by next year. Acreage, a cannabis operator founded in 2014 as High Street Capital Partners, runs growing, processing and dispensing facilities in 14 states. Former House speaker John Boehner serves on its board.
